Welcome to Austin Zoo!

During these uncertain times, one thing is certainly true. Animals still need our help. Zulema, the White Tiger you see below, was recently rescued from a private residence in south Texas.  Please go to our Facebook page for an exciting message from our Director of Animal Care and Veterinary Services, Scott Chambers. 


Caring for our big cats is extremely expensive. Please, please help us take care of her and all our other animals.
